Fat Tuesday is right around the corner, so we are in full Mardi Gras mode at our house. We made this Cajun Dirty Rice last weekend and it was SO good!!! This isn't a traditional dirty rice - there are no chicken livers in this rice! I'm not a chicken liver kind of gal!! This Cajun Dirty Rice has a mixture of pork sausage and ground beef. This is very easy to make and is ready in about 30 minutes!
This makes a TON, so it is perfect for a Mardi Gras Party. You could also easily cut the recipe in half. We ate this for dinner and had leftovers for lunch. It was great both times!
